Just wanted to share the good news.
My first book has been nominated for a New Visions Award!
So what is that?
The NEW VISIONS AWARD is for a middle grade or young adult fantasy, science fiction, or mystery novel by a writer of color. The Award winner receives a cash prize of $1000 and our standard publication contract, including our basic advance and royalties for a first time author.
What does it mean?
If I win, Seraphim is on the short road to being published!
Am I nervous?
Oh you bet. I’ve had a few people read over my work, and it never gets any easier. I suppose when I’m published I’ll be nothing but nerves.
What can I do?
Fingers crossed! Keep those good vibes coming!
